To Baby Boomers the name Woodstock conjures up images of Richie Havens, Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin performing in a field at Yasgur’s farm in 1969.  To fans of American Art, the name conjures up images of the peaceful town and art colony nestled in the Catskill Forest Preserve about 100 miles north of New York City.

Artists of Woodstock: Collective Creativity includes paintings, lithographs and drawings that demonstrate the breadth of talent in works spanning six decades from the establishment of the Byrdcliffe Art Colony at Woodstock through the current day. Well-known 20th Century artists included are John F. Carlson, Frank Swift Chase, Doris Lee, and Eugene Speicher.

Paintings, prints and drawings on display in the Holland and Double Galleries are from the collection of long-time Trenton Museum Society supporters Ted Boyer, Jane Rohlf and Bob and Alison Boyer Eriksen and represent the arts colonies at Woodstock in the 20th Century.
